Worship

We are excited to return to worship in the sanctuary on July 4, 2021, with masks and social-distancing, as well as a high quality livestream option.

Until then, Epworth continues to gather exclusively online for worship, with videos premiering on Facebook, YouTube and this page every Sunday at 10 a.m.
